    Classics torsos on 200x waists?

    Hello to all you custom aficionados, I have a question for ya'.

    Awhile ago on eBay, I saw someone who was selling a custom Classics Zodak that utilized the belt/loincloth from the 200x version to make it 200x style instead of having the figure using the recycled He-Ro waist. It looked very cool, my question is could it be so simple as to use boiling or microwaved water to remove the torsos and legs on both the
    Classics and 200x figures to do a simple swap, or would it be more complex than that?

    A few years ago I saw one of He-Bro's videos that demonstrated how to take apart a Classics figure, but I don't know if that same method could be used for a 200x figure? For those of you who have taken apart a 200x figure, is the peg attached to the torso as in Classics, or is the peg on the waist like in Origins?

    personally, i did it a couple of time back then, but i went the lazy route: i just made a cut on the side of the loincloith and then reglued it on the figure
    (bear in mind that the holes are different, so you need to remove some material to fit properly).

    however, if memory serves, on his channel he-bro made a "how to" video for a motuc ice armor he-man some time ago.

    Yeah, I saw a tutorial by He-Bro on how to remove loincloth. Fairly simple, as I though about biting the bullet on that custom Zodak I referenced, but now that I know how it's done, it would be much easier to just buy a beater/used 200x Zodak and go from there.

    If you donít care about the 200x figure, they break in half very easilyÖdonít ask how I know.
